More Birthday Sharing

The mailman delivered some more birthday wishes yesterday and today.  Two of my SCS friends, Charlene (aka LilLuvsStampin and aka Gertie) sent me this wonderful partying cow card.  Just look at those clouds.  She is quite the artiste!  She also sent me some stamping goodies and "fat free chocolate".  Thank you Charlene, I will enjoy them all.

And today I received this beautiful card from Emily (aka Stamp Muse).  Isn't this just absolutely gorgeous!  I love the embossing and I'm going to have to get her to tell me what folder she used on that background!  Thank you Emily.  I am so touched by your thoughtfulness.

My dear HWNSNBP took me to tea for my birthday.  Well, we actually went the day after, but we went nonetheless and although he was the only "man" in the tea room, he enjoyed his lunch.  We went to Teaberry's in Flemington and I would highly recommend them if you are ever in the area.  He had a regular lunch - a crabcake sandwich with lemonade and I had the Milady's tea.  The Milady's tea includes a pot of tea of your choice (I chose decaf apricot), a plate of finger sandwiches, a fresh warm scone with clotted cream, lemon curd and raspberry preserves, a dessert sampler, and a small scoop of fresh sorbet. 


I included a picture of the lovely centerpiece and forgot to take a picture of the sorbet served in a cordial glass.  I had chosen blood orange sorbet and it came topped with a single blueberry.  The scone was a maple pecan and was warm and delicious.  The sandwiches were all very good. I love having all those different tastes to sample.  And as for the desserts - I didn't eat all of them there, just a bite of one or two and the rest came home for later that evening. 

It's been a very memorable birthday thanks to my wonderful friends.

  1. Oh my, Milady's Tea looks fabulous - all so beautifully presented. That marbled sandwich is amazing. If it only tasted half as good as it looks, it must still have been memorable. And I recognise the pattern on that silverware - I have some dessert forks from an old set of my mother's. I always thought it came from France, maybe it came from Canada. I've never seen the pattern anywhere else before.
    I remember those happy partying cows :D


It's always so nice to hear from visitors. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
